Costume hire is for as long as needed for each individual show, this includes the technical and dress rehearsal as well as the performance. All costumes will be delivered to the student during their DSL dance class or the dress rehearsal.
To ensure all of our costumes are clean, tidy and in great condition before they get to you, we hire all our costumes out for a small fee. This helps maintain the costumes we have and expand the Costume Cupboard to make sure we cater to all our students performance needs.
As we order our fabulous costumes from around the world sizing can get complicated... Please provide your normal dress size and we will hold a fitting with all dancers before the big show.

Dance Studio London understands the importance of a great costume! The right costume can build a students confidence, create unity before hitting the stage, reinforce the story or theme and even clinch the winning spot at a competition! However, good quality dance costumes are very costly and are sometimes worn once before being retired to the bottom of the draw.
